Excellent steaks, pasta, soups, salads and desserts. Favorite local restaurant. Never had a bad meal or bade experience in over 10 years. Sometimes very busy. Best to get there early.

The best and fresh salad ever. A great improvement of just a year ago. Great dual specials that are very good. Service (by Andrew) was terrific. He knew how to keep the customer happy.

Nice Italian Menu. Food is always decent. Some dishes much better than others. There is outside seating in nice weather. There is also a bar surrounding the open kitchen where it is fun to eat and watch them cook. We have eaten there about every 2 months for years.

The Allentown Carrabba's is a great place to take your family or your date. The food is always great and the service is outstanding too! I have lived in the area for 13 years and have never been disappointed when wanting a great Italian meal.

Met some friends here for dinner this afternoon. Had not been here in quite a while since we moved further away. Must say the quality of their food has only improved. Service was excellent also. My wife and I both chose the pick three for $15.99, which comes with a salad also. I chose the lasagna, the prosciutto wrapped pork... More

I've had some very nice meals at Carrabba's and I have enjoyed the waitstaff. My last visit, however, has put me off so much I will probably not return. A single older woman did not seem to be the type of customer my waiter and the restaurant manager wanted to have. It took a long time for service. The bread,... More

I chose the salmon with cold orzo salad. Bread and dipping oil came with the meal. The salmon had a wonderful flavor and the piece was so large I was able to take half home. Likewise the orzo salad portion, which had a nice amount of peas to double as a vegetable, was enough for another meal. Only drawback of... More
